From the Author
From Grant... This book is about approaching the last third of our lives. It was a great experience to do this book with a friend that I met 37 years ago! Old friends are a great gift - more valuable as each year passes. Dr. Cook combines his expertise as a geriatric psychiatrist with a genuine care for others as people. We are both baby boomers heading into our third act so this book was a self-help book for us too. It was most interesting to explore the many topics that are part of our generation as well as the challenges we all face as we get older. The book is a positive book - we can't help it - even where we look at some of the difficult aspects of the third act of life. Co-authoring is a different experience from writing alone. As with my earlier book with Michael Lanthier, the opportunity to write a book with a friend is filled with many discussions and reflections that are a pleasure. I am hopeful that "The Third Act" will benefit others in the baby boom generation as much as it has been helpful for me as a person looking forward at my life. I am pleased that you will now be able to read Bill's perspectives on finishing well.
